Each month we spotlight a different member of our wonderful, all-volunteer team. Get to know the people dedicating their time to increasing access to care at Therapy4thePeople.
This spotlight first appeared in the October 2022 edition of our monthly newsletter.
What is your current role at Therapy4thePeople?
As the Director of Technology, I’m finding different ways to make an impact on our mission through tech. A fun project we are working on is using research and data to guide our website redevelopment and provide more empowering and impactful features. It’s the beginning phase and there’s a lot to do. I’m glad to work with such a thoughtful team.
What motivated you to join Therapy4thePeople?
I love to build and I love the impact of therapy. I also really enjoy learning about something that’s been done a certain way and try to rebuild it for the better. It’s empowering to work with everyone at Therapy4thePeople because we are trying to find a different way to solve a big issue without any playbook. And the work has unfathomable impact. To help one person feel more like themselves for one day is a more meaningful impact than a lot of tech companies achieve. Helping build the foundation of a tech non-profit is very meaningful to me.
What do you work on outside of our nonprofit?
I’m the Director of Engineering at Shift.com. I lead the Shopping and Growth engineering teams, which focus on marketing, browsing, search, content, etc. I’ve helped grow several start-ups and have worked with Fortune 100 companies to solve very difficult technical problems. I hope to help solve selling cars online at Shift while helping to grow the impact of Therapy4thePeople across the nation. One step at a time.
